NEW SCI-FI/ADVENTURE NOVEL ADDRESSES GLOBAL SOCIAL/ENVIRONMENTAL/POLITICAL PREDICAMENTS
Blue Hag Books is pleased to announce the release of ALL OF THE ABOVE, first novel from author and filmmaker Timothy Scott Bennett.
U.S. President Linda Travis embarks on a heroine’s journey in this exciting page-turner. Briefed at gunpoint and told of the human-alien conspiracy that secretly controls her government, President Travis does something none of her predecessors dared to do: she runs. During the chase that ensues, from rural Vermont to the arctic wilderness of Bathurst Island, through the underground blackness of the aliens’ Ottawa Lodge to the bewildering landscapes of the astral realm, Linda encounters both adversaries and advocates where she least expects them. Along the way, she falls in love, recovers her buried past, and meets head-on the converging crises of energy, economy, and environment that threaten the entire world. Finally, Linda questions core assumptions about the very nature of reality itself. By doing so she sees clearly what she must do to help her people.
ALL OF THE ABOVE, Bennett’s first foray into the world of science fiction adventure, is sure to be received with excitement by the many fans of his documentary film What a Way to Go: Life at the End of Empire. Bennett now uses fiction to continue the conversation he began in his documentary regarding the social, psychological, and spiritual implications of our global human predicament. The story offers an inspiring and challenging view of the news of the day. ALL OF THE ABOVE invites readers to gaze through a unique lens anchored in new science, indigenous mysticism, and non-ordinary human experience.
Timothy Scott Bennett holds a degree in anthropology from Michigan State University, and has also studied theology and filmmaking. He lives in Maine with his wife, Sally Erickson, where he writes, renovates a hundred-year old house, rides his bicycle, and revels in the sea air.
ALL OF THE ABOVE is available for sale at Amazon.com in both PRINT and KINDLE editions. Review copies are available.
